Hello Football Fans
Sir Alex Ferguson, the most successful Manager in Man United history, always used to say:
“Attack wins you games, defense wins you titles.”
The 2012-2013 season was the last time United won the Premier League, the arrival of Varane from Spanish giants Real Madrid is a sign the club is eager to thirst for glory again.
Most English Champions have been built from hav ing a very strong backline. Man City and Liverpool can attest to this.
In 2016-17, the year before Liverpool signed Virgil van Dijk, the Reds conceded 42 goals in 38 league games. By 2018-19, the Dutchman’s first full season, that total was down to 22. Having finished second, a year later they were champions for the first time in 30 years.
While Ruben Dias’ impact wasn’t quite so stark in that sense – City only let in four fewer goals in his debut campaign than they did in 2019-20 – the Portuguese made a huge difference alongside John Stones. With him in the team, Pep Guardiola’s men won 38 of 50 matches – a rate of 76% – and kept 25 clean sheets as they eased to a fifth Premier League title, a fourth successive Carabao Cup success, and reached the Champions League final.
Can the signing of Varane help 13-time Premier League winners Man United bridge last season’s 12-point gap to their local rivals Manchester City?
